This is part two of a three-part weekly film analysis on the performance of Patrick Mahomes. Part one here.It’s the midway point of the 2018 season and Clark Hunt was in town this week to deliver his state of the Chiefs address. Of course Dorian O'Daniel Jersey , he is clearly satisfied with what is happening currently in Kansas City. His 7-1 team has arguably the MVP of the league and best young asset in football, Patrick Mahomes.The proof of those two statements mounts every week. It’s an embarrassment of highlight riches for a fan base finally getting the taste of a franchise quarterback experience. Chiefs fans are wiping their nose with $100 bills. The standard for what amazes is higher than in any other city right now. You’re experiencing rare displays of arm talent each and every week. I hope we never get numb to them. This week is litmus test for that because there’s a throw that hasn’t made rounds yet that absolutely deserves to be.Something specialWe’ll start this week with something special. The situation and moment is not nearly as glamorous as some other throws Mahomes has delivered, but this should be up there with all the ones you’re thinking about right now.Denver is in a split safety look and the Chiefs are in a five-man protection with Spencer Ware free releasing on a swing route. Travis Kelce is running an out route and attacks safety Will Parks before breaking out. Mahomes is facing pressure from Shaquille Barrett, who is free on a twist. He doesn’t get a chance to step into this throw completely as he’s hit on the delivery. Regardless of the pressure, Mahomes shows some of the best anticipation he has all year, releasing the ball right as Kelce is getting out of his break. The arm talent to deliver this ball 20 air yards despite everything going on is rare. Even without following through on his throw, Mahomes places this ball perfectly to Kelce in stride and between a triangle of defenders. Denver had a great call on a pressure that got home and it didn’t matter. Mahomes flat out beat it with his rare abilities. We get moments like this every week. Panning for gold isn’t supposed to be this easy.It wasn’t the first time that game he delivered through pressure and contact.This is yet another fantastic throw. Mahomes delivers a strike in the red zone as he’s feeling backside pressure and is actually hit as he’s releasing it. It doesn’t affect the ball enough to be inaccurate—Mahomes arm talent gets the ball through the pressure. Lesser velocity might’ve forced this ball to be altered, but not with Mahomes here. Where the Chiefs were on the field is important to this too. The margin for error slims down the closer you get to the end zone.Something smartSpeaking of red zone efficiency...The Broncos are showing a middle field closed coverage shell with Kelce flanked out in the boundary in a 2x2 formation. He will be running a post. Mahomes is going to trust Kelce in this situation 100 times out of 100. He’s the best tight end in football.To maintain the window to throw this ball, Mahomes needs to keep the middle-field safety from driving on Kelce. In order to keep that window, Mahomes gives eyes and his shoulder to the field to hold the safety before whipping his eyes and hips around at the exact right time to deliver a strike to Kelce on the front line of the end zone. The safety is not able to close to contest the throw in time and the Chiefs score a touchdown.Decision making that close to the goal line has to be quick. Being able to process the information pre-snap, work his eyes and shoulders to maintain a window, and the timing to flip back to give Kelce a chance to score is exceptional work from a young quarterback. It’s becoming common, but these plays need to continue to be appreciated. KANSAS CITY Derrick Nnadi Jersey Salute to Service , Mo. (AP) — Andy Reid has always been considered an offensive-minded head coach, whether it’s because he played along the offensive line in college or tutored the likes of Brett Favre once he reached the NFL.So his response wasn’t all that surprising this week when the Chiefs coach was asked who generally comes out on top when an potent offense goes up against a shutdown defense.“This thing is based on a point system,” Reid said with a wry grin. “Pretty simple there.”Well, points might be at a premium even for the Chiefs’ potent attack Sunday, because Reid and Co. are getting precisely what he was asked about: The Baltimore Ravens are rolling into Arrowhead Stadium boasting the league’s top-ranked defense for an intriguing matchup between playoff contenders.The AFC West-leading Chiefs (10-2) are tops in the NFL in scoring at 37 points per game. They also lead in yards per play, are third in yards passing and in the top five in most other categories.The Ravens (7-5), who are a game back of Pittsburgh in the loss column in the AFC North, allow a league-best 17.8 points per game. They’re also No. 1 in total yards, second in yards passing and third in yards rushing, while their 35 sacks also rank among the best in the NFL.“We’re going to face, arguably, the best offense in the league on Sunday. We just have to go to work,” Ravens coach John Harbaugh said. “I know that’s what you always hear Sammy Watkins Jersey , but that’s really got to be the focus. Just keep it about that.”As for the Chiefs, their focus can return to what happens on the field.They were preparing for last week’s trip to Oakland when video surfaced that showed star running back Kareem Hunt assaulting a woman in a hotel hallway in February. By the time they took the field 48 hours later, Hunt had been released and Spencer Ware had taken over as the starter in a 40-33 victory.Now, the veteran running back will have a week’s worth of work as their No. 1 running back behind him, and just in time to face the Ravens and their rugged defensive front.“They’ve got a lot of size up front, and on their defense overall, but it’s the same mentality,” Ware said. “We’re going to try to get in there and control the football.”The Ravens have likewise become a ground-oriented attack with elusive Lamar Jackson under center, and with the emergence of Gus Edwards at running back. They’ve had at least 200 yards rushing in each of their past three wins, becoming the first team since the 2010 Jaguars to accomplish that feat.“I just play ball. I don’t think about all that when I’m out there,” Jackson said. “It’s just moving the ball, get positive possessions, don’t get negative plays and stuff like that. I just want to move the ball downfield Authentic Anthony Hitchens Jersey , hopefully get in the red zone and score points.”As the Ravens prepare to visit Kansas City on Sunday, here are some other things to know:TEACHER VS STUDENTHarbaugh was hired in 2008 by Ray Rhodes and retained when Reid took over as Philadelphia’s coach in 2009, working first with special teams and then with the secondary.Harbaugh and Reid went to a Super Bowl together with the Eagles in 2004, before Harbaugh left for Baltimore in 2008.“Who you start with really makes a big difference,” said Harbaugh, who won the Super Bowl with the Ravens in 2012. “If you start with people that do it the right way it just gives you a chance, gives you a leg up. And Andy, for me, was a big part of that in every way.”PLENTY OF OPTIONSWhen Jackson runs the run-pass option, he’s got plenty of backs from which to choose. Edwards has been receiving the majority of carries lately, though his string of 100-yard games ended in Atlanta in part because Kenneth Dixon and Ty Montgomery combined for 11 attempts. Dixon ran for 37 yards, but he also had one of the Ravens’ four fumbles in the game.“The good thing is,” Harbaugh said Limited Kendall Fuller Jersey , “he recovered it right away.”BELIEF IN BERRYChiefs safety Eric Berry could make his season debut after hurting his heel early in training camp. He never landed on injured reserve, but the Chiefs held their star playmaker out of action until coming back from their bye last week. He didn’t play in Oakland, but he now has two weeks of practice under him and Reid said it is possible that he is active on Sunday.WEST’S RETURNThe Chiefs signed former running back Charcandrick West to provide depth after Hunt’s release, and don’t be surprised if he is active on Sunday. West is familiar with the offense, and he is excellent as both a pass-catcher and blocker in the passing game, making him useful against the Baltimore defense.“Home is always the best-case scenario,” West said of his return. “This is my family.”FORECAST FOR FOOTBALLFreezing temperatures are expected Sunday, and some wonder how Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes will respond to them. He played collegiately at Texas Tech, and the bye coupled with a trip to Oakland the past few weeks means his experience in frigid weather is limited.“I don’t think it changes at all. Coach Reid has us outside every single day,” he said. “But it will be awesome to be back at Arrowhead. Hopefully we can stay here more than these last three (regular-season) games. Hopefully we can use home-field advantage to our advantage.”
